It's Essential To Keep Your Car Windows Clear All The Time

Cars are incredibly important machines. They help us get our children to school, get us to school, and allow us to enjoy and partake in numerous leisure and extra-curricular activities. It is important to keep your vehicle in great condition by getting it serviced regularly and checking the air pressure as well as fluid levels. Car window care is an aspect of vehicle maintenance that's often overlooked.

Here are some of the most unexpected and helpful winter car care tips I have found to help survive winter driving:


#1. Keeping them Clean

Vision quality is of great importance when driving, so ensure that you keep your car's windscreen clean always. You should keep it clean both inside and out. Baby wipes are the best tools for cleaning the inside of your car's windows since it ensures a spotless and streak free clean. You should avoid using paper towels since they tend to leave bits of paper and streaks on the windows. A light microfiber cloth is an excellent option for cleaning the exterior. A squeegee mop with some warm water and detergent is another excellent option.


#2. Wiper Care

Windscreen wiper care is just as important as caring for your car's windows and windscreen. You need to clean your wiper whenever you clean your car's windscreen. Wipe the blades using a slightly dampened cloth and remove any build-up of dirt or grime. It will cut out the irritating squeak that's caused by dirty and dry blades and helps keep your vehicle windows in excellent condition.


#3. Water Spots

Water spots typically form several days after you give your vehicle a proper wash. If left untreated the water spots can cause damage to the windows. Using a quality glass polish is the best way to get rid of the unsightly spots from the windows. Apply the polish using an approved applicator and gently remove it using a microfiber towel.


4. Dealing with Cracks or Chips

Minor cracks and chips occur easily. When you are driving, the windscreen is exposed to gravel, debris, and other environmental hazards. The hazards easily cause serious or superficial damage to the vehicle. If you notice a chip or crack, it should be taken seriously. Even minor damage can be a potential safety risk. The best way to care for your car's windows is to use a professional windscreen replacement or repair service. They can fix up your vehicle and help you get back on the road without much delay - this limits the need for major auto glass repair down the road.


#5. Caring for the Rear Windscreen

It is easy to get so caught up in making sure that the front windscreen is in excellent condition that you forget about the rear windscreen. The rear windscreen requires just as much care and attention as the front windscreen. This also means that you need to attend to any cracks or chips in your rear windscreen as quickly as possible too.
